In a video from the red carpet, that has now gone viral, the actress is constantly seen adjusting the train, at times with some help from her colleagues and team. Deepika was constantly seen sweeping the trail away from her path at the festival and netizens soon started trolling her fashion moment. One netizen commented, “this is painful to watch! Indian celebrities have still not got it right when it comes to events like this! Sad.” While another one wrote, “Lo karwaali na berzzati? Wear clothes instead of draping some random sheets.” Taking a dig at Deepika’s duty as a juror at Cannes, one Instagram user commented, “She went there as a jury this year…. is she even watching the films??? Because getting dressed up like that too much time consuming….. do know how will she gonna critique those films…” This year, Deepika Padukone has joined the jury which includes actor-filmmaker Rebecca Hall, Noomi Rapace, Italian actor-director Jasmine Trinca, and directors Asghar Farhadi, Ladj Ly, Jeff Nichols and Joachim Trier. The jury will present the Palme d’Or honours at the film festival’s closing ceremony, which will be held on Saturday, May 28.
On the work front, Deepika Padukone has a busy slate ahead. She has reunited with Shah Rukh Khan for ‘Pathaan’ and has been paired opposite Hrithik Roshan for the first time in ‘Fighter’. She also has an untitled movie with Prabhas and the official Hindi remake of Hollywood movie ‘The Intern’ in her kitty.
